John, rays as nimbus, indicating to right with right hand, raising left hand, stands next to book, behind rocky outcrop in landscape. He looks toward: Apocalypse: Vial I, Sores -- One of three angels pours contents of vial onto ground. Apocalypse: Vial II, Sea of Blood --Next to first angel, the second, empties vial into stream with fish, and nude man, eyes closed. Apocalypse: Vial III, Rivers of Blood -- Behind right, third angel empties vial into red stream. Above, in cloud-edged arc of Heaven, seven angels surround God (?) as half-figure, wearing tiara, extending right hand, holding globe in left hand. Illustration of Revelation 16:2-4.
